Cervical Screening Awareness Week (CSAW) runs from Monday 11 June – Sunday 17 June 2018. Cervical screening prevents 75% of cervical cancers from developing yet one in four women don’t attend. You can help change this!
Join the campaign to make that happen.
Cervical cancer is the most common form of cancer in women under 35 with two women in the UK per day dying from the disease. Regular cervical screening appointments can prevent up to 75% of instances of cervical cancer, saving 5,000 lives per year. Despite this, many women are reluctant to have this test.
Cervical Screening Awareness week aims to encourage all women to have regular cervical screening as well as to provide information and reassurance around any fears or embarrassment that women may have concerning taking the test.
More information about Cervical Screening Awareness Week and information about cervical cancer and cervical screening itself can be found on the Jo’s Trust website www.jostrust.org.uk or from your local GP’s office.
